Here’s October 2016’s Monthly Indicators report from the Greater Boston Association of Realtors® showing Boston real estate market trends.
October 2016 Greater Boston Real Estate Market Trends
As we enter the final quarter of 2016, not much has changed since the year began. Market predictions have been, in a word, predictable. A relatively comfortable pace of activity has been maintained thanks to continuing low unemployment and mortgage rates. The one basic drag on market acceleration has been inventory decline. There is little to indicate that the low inventory situation will resolve anytime soon.
